Zendaya seems to break the internet just about any time she leaves the house, TBH. Whether she's rocking a see-through, rhinestone-covered mesh top and blazer, head-to-toe hot pink, an epic red carpet gown or even just a low-key combo of jeans and a top, her fashion choices are instant front-page news material – and naturally, it's the more out-there and daring the better.
So you can only imagine the full-on meltdown that has ensued from the release of what is undoubtedly Zendaya's sexiest photoshoot to date. Trust us when we say, you've never seen her looking *anything* like this before. Prepare for your jaws to be on the floor...
The actress has just been revealed as the new cover star for ELLE magazine's September issue, shot by photographer Steven Klein and styled by Law Roach in a series of show-stopping looks.
As the publication itself put it, Zendaya has officially entered her "era of risk" – and we love to see it. For the cover image, the actress stands tall in a knitted black Louis Vuitton mini dress covered in cut-out details, and paired with classic Louboutin heels, red lipstick and some mega Bulgari diamonds. But that's nothing on the rest of the photoshoot...
In a sneak peek dropped on ELLE's Insta just a few hours ago, Zendaya can also be seen wearing a bright red leather biker-style outfit by Alexander McQueen – including a skirt with a MAJOR thigh slit – while shifting a gigantic truck tyre... And in the next, she's just casually hanging hanging off a boxing ring in a tiny lil black Celine bodysuit and chunky black boots. As ya do!
The pics that have *really* got the internet talking, though, are the ones of Zendaya in an array of lingerie-style looks – naturally. In one photo, the star can be seen looking fierce AF in a see-through black lace mesh bra by Simone Pérèle and a leather jacket, while another shows Zendaya channeling old Hollywood glamour in a red lacy underwear set by edgy British-Turkish designer Dilara Findikoglu and a HUGE fluffy white Michael Kors coat. The perfect mix of sexy and chic, if you ask us!
And finally, the star of the show: a super sultry, completely backless black dress that juuuust about skims the top of Zendaya's bum... It's giving BDSM builder's bum, but make it high-fashion. The designer behind such genius? The ever-brilliant Peter Dundas. Sir, we salute you!
